Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes (12 to 14 ounces total)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh soft bread crumbs, or 1 slice bread, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese (preferably imported)


Directions

  1. Cut tomatoes in half crosswise. Gently squeeze out and discard the seeds. Place the tomatoes cut side up on a broiler pan prepared with non-stick pan spray.
  2. Combine the garlic, oil, basil, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush evenly over the cut surfaces of the tomatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heat source until hot, about 5 minutes.
  3. While the tomatoes are broiling, combine the crumbs and cheese in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the tops of the hot tomatoes. Return to the broiler until the crumbs are browned, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
